Five Things You Need To Know Today, May 17
The Boys & Girls Club Carnival is underway!
Here are five things you need to know today:
1) Good day sunshine: What is that bright orb in the sky? It seems to be warming the earth. And brightening our sky! Why, it's the sun! The National Weather Service expects sunshine, a light breeze and temperatures in the low 70s. Delightful!
2) Life after high school: Yes, indeed, there is life after high school. The Woburn Special Education Parent Advisory Council is holding a transitioning seminar tonight at Joyce Middle School geared toward parents of students with Individualized Education Plans and 504s. Discussion begins at 6 p.m.
3) Event Spotlight: The annual Boys & Girls Club Carnival continues tonight at the movie theater. Admission is only $1. And there are "unlimited ride" wristband opportunities. Click here for more information.
4) In Case You Missed It: There was a lot of Woburn Police action on the site yesterday. From the graduation of an officer in Photo of the Day, to our lead story on a Top Cop, and finally an accident on Green Street, we had a busy WPD day. Click on the links in case you missed any of the stories.
5. I thought about going to the store, then I went to the store...: On this day in 1873, Dorothy Richardson is born. The author would become the "mother" of "stream of consciousness" writing. Although she's not as famous as other stream of consciousness writers—like Virginia Woolf—she is credited with being the first to write in the stream style. Her novel Pilgrimmage was 12 volumes long and published over several years. Richardson died at the age of 84 in 1957.
